The four divisions of Veolia Environnement, the world’s largest environmental services company, are unveiling a new logo and unified name at the upcoming 2005 National League of Cities, Congress of Cities and Exposition in Charlotte, December 6-10.
The global re-branding initiative underscores the company’s desire to highlight its market position as an industry leader while uniting business divisions under one common corporate identity and culture. On a global basis, Veolia Environnement is the world’s top environmental services company. In North America, it is now the third-largest services provider, according to ENR magazine.
In the North American market, the changes include:
— Onyx, a North American industry leader in waste management, will adopt the name of Veolia Environmental Services.
— Connex and ATC, now the largest private operator of bus and rail public transportation in North America, is adopting the name of Veolia Transportation.
— Veolia Water North America, the nation’s leader in public-private partnerships for water and wastewater services, will maintain its existing name and adopt the new logo.
— Dalkia North America, VE’s energy management company, will continue to market under its existing name.
The change also aims to reinforce the service commitment of the company’s 270,000 employees seeking to establish a benchmark worldwide for trust, reliability and expertise in environmental solutions.
Veolia Environnement will be exhibiting at the National League of Cities conference to share best practices in the areas of responsible waste management, quality water and wastewater services, efficient energy and facility management, and comprehensive transportation systems. The company holds a significant number of municipal contracts across the United States and Canada.
